The Dachstein re-opening took Austria's open ski area tally to five, up from a low of four in the latter half of May, but it's back down to four for another week at least as the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier above Kaprun, which has a 348cm (11.5 foot) snow base is just entering an eight day closure period for maintenance through to Jun 10th when it re-opens.
The Kaunertal Glacier has received another 14cm (seven inches) of fresh snow in the past week, taking its seasonal total since last autumn very close to the 10 metre mark (over 33 feet), on 984cm. Snow depth is 139cm (four and a half feet) on upper slopes at 3250m.
On the Stuibai Glacier near Innsbruck there are five lifts and five blue and red grade runs open on a 280cm (9.3 foot) base.
The Hintertux glacier near Mayrhofen currently has one of the largest ski areas open with eight lifts operating serving 23km (14.5 miles) of terrain open including the ski-run down to Tuxer Ferner House at 2,660m. Snow depth is 325cm (11 feet).
